4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I like the environment Carthage builds, though I wish the school was less expensive

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have had incredible professors and very interesting classes. The campus is beautiful.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoy the location of Carthage and even though the weather is horrible in the winter it pays off with all the friendly people and great professors.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Students who need it receive scholarships and grants from the school, but even with the financial aid (including loans) it is a struggle to cover the costs of this school.

Greek Life: I have no interest in being in social Greek Life, but the Academic Sororities and Fraternities are fun and a good way to get involved on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our football team isn't that great and they've been told so by rude people on social media. Some students really like to hate on the football team.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I really don't know since I don't go to them, but on social media there seems to be parties almost every weekend if you can find them.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Carthage claims to be a dry and drug-free campus, but as soon as you walk into certain dorm building you can smell it when people are smoking pot. Getting drunk is a common trend among students as well, but hardly anyone gets caught.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Sometimes the Cafeteria serves good quality food, but the company who runs all the food establishments on campus has a reputation there for not being very good. They have the potential to serve great food, but they reserve those efforts for when parents or possible students are expected to visit.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: All of the dorm buildings, not including the Oaks (the newest set of buildings), are clean most of the time. Sometimes people pull pranks and mess up the bathrooms on each floor, otherwise the buildings are pretty clean. The rooms are a good size, but the floors are made of cheap tile and crack easily. Registering for housing consists of waiting based on how many credits you've earned then claiming a room, so it's pretty easy. Room and Board is on the expensive side at around $10,000.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life here is basically like anywhere else. There are many options of local and national sororities and fraternities to choose from. Every sorority and fraternity has a dedicated philanthropy that they all work hard to fundraise for. The greeks do things within the campus community and outside community.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are many different options for people to choose from for housing off campus. There are houses, condos, and apartments that one can rent.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of adorable non-chain restaurants in Kenosha to visit. The prices are usually fair. There are some wonderful expensive and tasty restaurants as well.

3 College Junior

Administration: The administration sets strict rules, yet they don't always enforce those strict rules. They make students pay $1,000 for parking right on campus, but they tell you that you aren't guaranteed or entitled to a parking spot. Security takes their sweet time when they respond to calls. They aren't the most professional, and act like they are superior.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Carthage College is an expensive school, however they do offer a variety of scholarship options for students to apply for. It can be difficult to find those scholarships.

2 College Junior

Campus Food: Cafeteria food is of low quality and does not vary. It's always the same things offered every single day. There is a severe lack of healthy options. If there are any healthy foods, they are extremely expensive. There are barely any options for vegans, vegetarians, or other food restrictions.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is very convenient because of the proximity to all the buildings. Housing is mainly based in the center of campus, making it easy to get to all places on campus in roughly 5 minutes. However, WiFi is not dependable. The main dorms are fairly clean, yet some showers have black mold in them, causing allergic reactions for some. Dorms are also quite noisy, making it difficult to concentrate and get work done in your own room.

3 College Freshman

Administration: as long as your respectful they'll treat you fairly

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Only thing to do on the weekends

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: don't give aid to people that deserve/work for it

Campus Food: Too pricy for athlete schedules and cant last long

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Food prices should be lowered for athletes

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: at Carthage College Resident Assistants are Trained to be prepared for this type of situation. it is a very closed situation. if anything hints to a sexual assault, Resident assistants are to call a hall director end the Resident Assistant is immediately removed form the situation

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: as an Athlete the accessibility to updated and well cared for equipment is available. but for the average student wishing to use the gym, the equipment is outdated and not cleaned on a regular basis. The facilities are too small and access to workout groups are few. It is difficult to join a group and even harder to ask for a personal trainer.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at Carthage College is a great step, with many opportunities to have top positions and with the variety of local and international fraternities and sororities. The bond of brother and sister hood that all carthage Greek participants is something very unique to carthage. Philanthropy here is something that is highly looked at and constantly being hosted by Greek organizations
